If you have ever felt like self-help focuses on what is wrong with you, get excited because Rath and Clifton want to bask in what is right with you. These psychologists present supporting data that if you want to enjoy happiness, positive relationships, and general abundance in your life, a positive focus will attract these aspects into your life. This book posits that not only will a positive outlook, an expressive one that lifts up others, primarily verbally, lead you to a path of fulfillment, but you will also experience professional and personal growth. This will come from knowing your strengths and recognizing the strengths you see in others.
This extremely short read did not do much for me. As a self-help pupil, I did not feel a renewed sense of purpose or a life-altering perception change. I felt like the premise boiled down to the importance of verbally affirming the achievements others value the most in themselves. While I find this unbelievably important and lovely in practice, I do not find it new. Who knows, maybe that makes me a good person, which is clearly what I value most in myself.
When purchasing the book from Amazon, you receive a free access code to the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment. I enjoyed the free online test, but again did not feel shiny and new after going through the results.
check it out from your local library and if you like it that much then come here and purchase it
Oh and you have a free code to do a strength test on the website. I'm not being exactly clear but it's included in the book.
Purchased several copies for family and friends because the book teaches us how to change how we approach each other. The concept are easy to understand and apply.
